Investing.com - The tech sector has led the market for much of the past decade, and the pandemic environment only accelerated that trend. 2021, however, put a crimp in that pattern. As of market close December 30th, the Nasdaq (22.1%) trailed the S&P 500 Index (27.2%) and was about slightly ahead of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (18.9%) on a total return basis year to date. The Nasdaq will finish comfortably in the double-digits return range, with the year-end rally pushing it over the 20% mark, but that is still a come-down from 45% total return in 2020, more than twice its peer indices. Underneath the surface, the action in the tech sector has been a lot more volatile, as early year speculation in SPACs and newly public companies gave way to selling off “pandemic winners”, as their forward growth looks much foggier.

As the end-of-the-year period has made clear, we’re entering a different environment, one of inflation and potential rate hikes on the one hand, and of continued pandemic-related twists on the other hand, including even the possibility that (one can hope) it has finally faded to being a background issue. The immediate and secondary effects on tech, from consumer spending to supply chain snarl to continued software adoption, will be hard to avoid, but also hard to predict.

    • Does anyone else know any other SB providers that you can use to trade through TV?  I've only so far seen CFD providers which doesn't work for me due to tax reasons (mainly the hassle of having to account for it as well as the obvious cost).
    • Is there any update on when/if there will be any integration with Tradingview???
    • The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.
